Homebrew Clubs / Decatur, Il homebrew club, 3rd meeting
« on: May 21, 2011, 11:33:10 AM »
What's up everyone? Once again we had an awesome second meeting. There was about 10 people at May's meeting and there were about 4 new people! I've talked to several people since that's interested in attending future meetings. It sounds like the words spreading fast. There were a lot of new homebrews and homemade wine being passed around and there wasn't a bad one all night!!
We didn't quite establish a club name at last months meeting. There were a few names passed around but nothing really got decided on. I would like to get a name established so I can post it on the brewing forums so people can find us easier. I can't remember every name that was thrown out (and there were some good ones being said towards the end of the night!!!), but I will list a few that stood out and that people have sent to me. Look them over and decide on which one you like best and email me back asap. My friend Rory that's in the club is playing around with a facebook page and a club email address. For now it's still kind of up in the air until we decide on a club name. But I think that will be a good way to keep everyone in the loop on club meetings and events. Anyway, here are some names to vote on. The sooner you email or text me back the better.
Charlie forwarded me an email from a guy who is interested in joining and he said he has a homebrew party a couple times a year and sent the whole club an invite to attend. He said it will be at his place on June 25 starting in the afternoon. Hopefully we will have more details on that at next clubs meeting. And this Saturday Decatur's having a craft beer fest from 5 to 8 in downtown. I think tickets are $25 if you purchase them in advance and $30 at the door. You get a sample glass and unlimited tastings. I've heard there are going to be over 20 vendors although I'm not sure what vendors will be there. Also, the Long Creek Winery is having a blues tent party all weekend as well and will have beer being served. I mentioned the brew contest in Champaign, Illinois at first months meeting. If anyone is interested in sending any beers into that, the deadline is May 28 I believe.
Anyway, I hope to see you all on June 14 at 7:00. If you are interested, please send me an email @

Homebrew Clubs / Decatur, Il homebrew club, 2nd meeting
« on: April 26, 2011, 09:12:07 PM »
Hey all! Well the first meeting went really well. There was a total of 9 people that showed up, 7 of which were brewers, the other 2 were interested in brewing. And all 7 brought several homebrews all of which were good. Hope all of you can make it to the next one. It will be held on the second Tuesday of each month. Mays meeting will be held at my house on May 10 at 7:00. If you or anyone you know is planning on coming, please let me know so I will have an idea of how many to expect. And don't forget to bring some homebrews!!! If you don't have any, don't worry about it, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to bring 1 or 2 of something you like or may want some other people to try. If you are thinking about or planning to join the club, we are trying to come up with a club name. If you can think of anything, bring it to May's meeting and we will vote on it!
If you're interested, please contact me at I will give you the address of the next meeting!
                                                              Cheers, Trelly

Homebrew Clubs / Decatur, Illinois Homebrew Club, 1st meeting
« on: April 04, 2011, 03:18:54 PM »
Hey All, Sorry you haven't heard from me in a while. I finally got a hold of the guy who is going to be kind enough to let us hold our first meeting at his house. He did mention that he has 3 beers on tap! I would like to hold the meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00 P.M. However, that night does not work for him this month, so we planned on having it on the 3rd Tuesday which is April 19. We are still planning on holding the other meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, though. Hopefully this works out for everybody. If anyone is interested please email me at and I will give you the address of his house. I will send the address to the people I've already spoken with. If you have some homebrews to bring that would be great. If not, don't worry about it, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to bring a beer or two of something you like or would like other people to try. I wouldn't have been able to organize this without the help of everyone. Thanks, and I look forward to seeing you all on 4/19 at 7:00. Please RSVP and let me know if you or anyone else you know can make it so I will have an idea on how many of you drunks to expect!                 Cheers, Trelly

Hey, so far so good. I think we have something happening. Please send me your email address cause I'm only allowed 5 messages on here until I upgrade (which I'm seriously considering doing), and I will get a hold of you about a date and time for our first meeting. I think I've got a place for first meeting (Charlie McGorrays house from McGorrays restaurant. Big homebrewer and beer lover. I think he has a bar with homebrews on tap and is willing to let us gather there at least for first meeting!). I just got his number and plan on calling him in the next couple days to work out details. I will keep you all posted. Thanks for all the fast replies. There is a lot of enthusiastic brewers here in town. Can't wait to meet up with you all and discuss and drink beer! Once again, please send me your personal email addresses at and I will be back in touch with you very soon. Happy drinking!!!                Trelly

Homebrew Clubs / Looking for brewers in Decatur, IL

Hey,  My name is Michael Littrell and just joined the forum recently to see if I could find other brewers in Decatur. Turns out there are several of us here in town. I am hoping to get a club started. I've posted messages on several forums and have got a few replies already from people interested. Let me know if you would like to participate in a club, and if so, I would love suggestions on places we could potentially meet for club meetings. And if you know of any other people in town that may be interested, well... the more the merrier! Please feel free to contact me here or my email @ Hopefully with enough people and support we can make this happen! Thanks and Cheers.
